Impressive large house in the style of a castle, set in beautiful grounds. Lots to do for the kids such as a maze, play park and outdoor games and there's a trail to follow inside the house for a small additional charge. If you visit when an additional event is on it's an even better day out. All the staff... More

With 4 young children we are always looking for places to go that have lots to do. There was a circus skills workshop on which was amazing and the guy in charge of it was brilliant with the kids. Lots to see and the castle grounds were huge which had lots of parks and other stuff. The staff were just... More

Despite the weather, our visit was pleasant and interesting. Lovely lake and views of the castle. The castle itself is around 200 years old and is in great condition, making it an ideal and exclusive wedding venue. Worth the entrance fee!

My first visit to Eastnor Castle and I had a nice day despite the weather. The family still live in the castle and because of this large parts of the building are not open to visitors but all the state rooms appear to be open and for £10 entrance fee to the house and gardens I felt it was value...

It cost us just a Tenner to look round the castle and grounds of Eastnor and in this day and age that is true value for money. Small problem was we walked from the car park to the castle at 11.00 only to be told that we were not allowed in until 11.30. It did seem to be a cynical... More

It is not easy to sum up Eastnor - you just have to visit to experience it. No soundbites would do it justice. Sumptious,but not pretentious. Luxurious but homely. My Spouse would love to live here! Child & dog friendly. Good walks, tea room and shop. Have been a few times now. A lovely day out.

We attended a wedding at Eastnor on Friday. It was awesome. Only complaint would be everyone had difficulty finding the way in to the venue. Nearly everyone went to the Experience first. There was a problem I suspect nothing to do with the castle but the wedding planners. Those who were in the overspill room could see the monitors for... More

This is a lovely house to visit. What really stands out is how friendly and welcoming the staff are. You are free to walk around at your own pace, although there are guided tours if you want to join one. The house has some interesting collections and furnishings. The large grounds are well landscaped with lovely views but there is... More
